I am at my wits end.

What do you do when the only jobs in your area are retail and they won't touch you with a 10 foot pole because you are not an extrovert? Its getting frustrating. Only jobs are the retail jobs and thats it. I don't have an option to move to a different area with other job options. They ether don't hire me because I don't fit their personality test or they look at my education level and say you are to educated or we view you as a threat to our jobs as managers just based on education. That includes the food service end of retail.

Who cares my degrees are worthless degrees, the bottom fell out on the animation world, unless you have major industry experience when you graduate college and no one has that. Employers see MBAs as wasted degree now. As it does not prove you know a thing in their eyes.

People tell me to start a business, but that is not an option. No money and even if I did. My counties business regulations make it extremely hard and expensive to start one. (They wonder why they have 10+ percent unemployment rate here)

I am at my wits end.

An introvert can have a very good person and even be charming. Plus be very intelligent about what they are selling. If you can talk to your friends you can talk to customers. It a skill you can develop. I'm introvert like you. Your job will be to seek out your customers and help them. I enjoy helping people help themselves and it can fun. That what customer service is about. Try it and don't give up, you never know you might be an ace at it.

Still frustrated....

My area is economically a low man on the totem pole. Meaning we have about 10 to 15 percent unemployment most of the time. Regardless if the economy is doing well or not. What that means for me is I can't get a decent job that would allow me to save up to move to a better work area. Where there are jobs. What jobs there are here where I live are mostly low wage retail work. So that leaves me trapped in a area I loath to death and have no way out. People in my area say I should like the low wage job I have. Basically discouraging the idea of better work, or I should like a job I am bored out of my mind with. So fed up with it all. . . . . . . #lowwage #minimumwage #KitsapCounty #KItsap #highunemployment #jobs #Fedup #tired #unemployment #Washington #WA #WashingtonState #PNW #fulltime #fulltimeemployment #wornout #lifesucks

Yes the economy is good for rich people not for the poor if the economy is so good why is there so many freaking poor people struggling in "today's good economy"?

Kitsap County is an economic dead end.

Never move to Kitsap County in Washington state. Its a economic dead end. No work other then low wage work. Its anti small business so starting a business in this place will send you to the poor house. Fighting the local regulators. Cost of living is to high so even if you get work. You are not getting very far head of the game. Then you could get trapped like myself and are unable to leave. Thanks to low wage work and no way to save up to move to a better job location.

Fedup, frustrated, Depressed.

Only jobs I seem to be able to get is part time minimum wage work. Does not seem to matter what my skills are or my education or past successes. Its been that way my entire working like. I can't seem to get anything better. People around me act like I have never worked a day in my life. That the current job is my first job. Low wage work then long periods of unemployment. So tired of it.

Hi Mike--You gotta give me more to work with to make suggestions! First, smile, and be grateful for what you've got. Look through that list and see who can help you with your next step--your next contact, your resume update, etc. What kind of work are you trained for, skilled in, what are your successes?

At my wits end.

Tried raising money to start a local small business. No luck. If you start a business where I live you are seen as having a mental health problem or seen as a nut job. Aka no support. It is a common view here that you should be working for someone else even if that someone else won't hire you at all. Thanks to all the work being chain retail and base their hiring on if you have good credit or the so called right personality type via personalty tests.

Leaving me very few employment options. Mainly work no one else will do that is a dead end job that pays minimum wage with heavy labor. At my age I can no longer do that kind of work.

On top of being over educated for the local job market.

So I am back at square one. Very frustrated. Have no idea what to do anymore.

I see you are an industrial designer. This may seem a bit different however consider the utility space. Surprisingly a lot going on with forward thinking innovation. I am contracting at a utility company and there are 2 industrial designers there working on some pretty interesting projects. Just a thought...
